Stormriders Posted February 14, 2015 Share Posted February 14, 2015 Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. With all the problems our power-play has had this year, and in particular the 2nd unit, can anyone provide any reasonable explanation of why Higgins and Dorsett are on it? I like both of them for the roles they play, particularly Dorsett, but they are not the strongest offensive threats we can put out there. Yes they both hustle and work hard and are good defensively, but the power-play is about production. Higgins, in the last 30 games since November 30th, has a total of two goals, and only two points on the power-play the entire year. Dorsett has zero points on the power-play. Tonight of all nights, when you have two guys playing particularly well in Matthias and Kassian, who had a combine 5 points out of a team total of 12, they should have been given a chance. Kassian’s two assists tonight were both great setups and he was full credit for his play. Also, Bo has been hot lately and earned his opportunity as well. And yes Bo got a little time on it tonight but only because Hank was getting fixed up after the high stick. Hey, maybe even send out the three of them together, …. that if nothing else would be interesting to see what they could produce. AND, wouldn’t that send the right message of being rewarded for good play. It is beyond reason that Willy continues to keep the same players on the power-play despite how very poor production has been. It is truly the definition of insanity, playing the same players night after night and expecting different results. It is so frustrating to watch a coach who is supposed to make adjustments from game to game, stick with the same players when it clearly is not working. I think this is a sign of poor coaching, and smacks of both someone who is stubborn and afraid to take a few risks by trying something new. Maybe you see some logic in not making changes in the power-play, but I sure don’t. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
